FAQ

What does a certified copy mean and who can certify my documents?

certified copy is a copy of an original document, that has on it an endorsement or certificate that it is a true copy of the original document. It does not certify that the original document is genuine, only that it is a true copy of the original document.

 

The only people who can certify your documents are a:

  • Legal Practitioner
  • Justice of the Peace
  • Peace Commissioner
  • Commissioner of Oaths
  • Commissioner of Declarations
  • Notary Public Judge
  • Magistrate
  • person legally designated to sign documents from an embassy or consulate.

 

AOAC recommends you ask the person who certifies your application form to certify all other documents.

 

The person who certifies your documents has to:

  • Include this statement on every document: I certify that this is a true copy of the original document
  • Put their signature underneath the statement.
  • State which profession they are a member of (they must be on AOAC?s list of accepted professionals)
  • Include the date, their contact address and their phone number.
  • Apply an official stamp or seal, if available.
  • Submitting incorrectly certified documents may delay your assessment.
